Oh, never mind that. Whats important is business and cash flow. Anyway, only tiny part of power of any country coming from the army. Most important is strategic importance. But, why would Russia override our Migs? It won`t be good for their own business, neither good for their reputation, neither good for their relations with China, etc, etc.
See, few days ago, as it seam to be, Serbia arrested few Russia`s spies on our territory and nicely expelled them without much noise. Russians then seams nicely apologized. Before that, we had similar incident with USA. All finishes nicely. No need to put finger in ass of world power. They are all very upset when come to it.
The cat was let out of the bag when France gave the UK the disable codes for the Exocet missiles they supplied to Argentina during the Falklands crisis.
just telling you about that. Its not good for business, that about codes.
